DESPITE being drawn against League One side Fleetwood Town in the second round of the FA Cup, Hereford fans are optimistic the Bulls can give them a game.

Many supporters took to social media to bemoan the draw on Monday night, while there was very little excitement in Addisons Bar where a number of fans congregated.

At the time, no one who Hereford would face due to Fleetwood's first round clash against Chorley taking place later in the evening.

But despite not facing a Football League giant or a non-league that will give Hereford a great chance of reaching the third round, some fans still think it's a good draw.

"It's not a bad draw," said Scott Morgan.

"They are eighth in League One, so it will be a harder game than we experienced on Saturday.

"But I think we will go up there and give them a game and, who knows, take them to a replay."

Scott was stood in the Meadow End for last Saturday's first round win over AFC Telford United and he said it was 'pure ecstasy' when John Mills scored the winning goal.

"Considering the club have only been going for three years, they have done so well and hopefully they will progress in the FA Cup like Hereford United did," said Scott.

The 28-year-old, who watched the match with his father Ken, uncle Kevin and cousin Connor, said that the Bulls did well to get through a tough game.

"Even though at times they were all over us, I thought we showed good determination to get a positive result," he said.

"You could tell they were very organised and dominated the game.

"But the sending off changed the game and we obviously went on to win it."

John Chamberlain has been going to Edgar Street for 58 years and said it's a phenomenal achievement for the new club to reach the second round.

"For a phoenix club to start from nothing, it's extraordinary," he said.

"The FA Cup has really captured the imagination of supporters and I really enjoyed it on Saturday.

"Telford slightly bossed the first half and had more chances than Hereford, but in the second half, I thought we did really well.

"I was confident we would win the game, I'm always a positive when it comes to Hereford."

Mills has scored over 120 goals in a Hereford shirt and John said that the lethal marksman is a fantastic player.

"Even when he is having a bad game, he steps up and scores goals," said John.

The 74-year-old added that he was hoping for a Chorley win, but will take an away tie at Fleetwood.

"I think we will be OK up there," said John.
